This release contained a regression which caused inaccurate Salt version detection, and thus was never packaged for general release. Please use version 2014.1.10 instead.
Version 2014.1.8 is another bugfix release for 2014.1.0. Changes include:
Ensure salt-ssh will not continue if permissions on a temporary directory are not correct.
Use the bootstrap script distributed with Salt instead of relying on an external resource
Remove unused testing code
Ensure salt states are placed into the
.salt directory in salt-ssh
Use a randomized path for temporary files in a salt-cloud deployment
Clean any stale directories to ensure a fresh copy of salt-ssh during a deployment
